Its interesting to see how my 11+ years old boy metamorphosis-ing into a young man. It does not fail to put a smile on my face, just by observing.
I find it absolutely ... amusing. From a parent's perspective, of course.
Joel, NEVER ever combs his hair.
He wakes up in the morning with the natural look till its time to bed at night.
He goes rock climbing, piano class, sleepovers, care group meetings with the same natural look.
He goes to church on Sundays with the same natural look.
Since hanging out with KG, he has made an observation.... Other boys actually COMBS their hair AND uses cologne.
It must have been a life-changing discovery!!! Because....
We went to a 4 years old birthday party of KG's sister at McDonalds, two days ago, and my son asked his Dad for some gel AND cologne.
He looked a million dollar and smelled like a Bvlgari boutique.
The STUD, my son.
